The app is designed to use extensive data collection to pinpoint just what price you should realistically pay for a classic vehicle.
The Internet has brought many blessings to the classic car enthusiast, including extensive vehicle histories, repair guides, and millions of photo galleries. Now, a new app looks to help us cut our next classic car deal. It’s called The Fuelist.
When you’re in the market for a classic car, it pays to know what other buyers have spent on similar rides, especially when a difference of two chassis code digits could cost you thousands of dollars. That’s where The Fuelist comes into play.
The app is designed to use extensive data collection to pinpoint just what price you should realistically pay for a classic vehicle. It scours data from thousands of classic car sales – from eBay to public auctions – and compiles the findings into a huge database, which includes location information, sale price, vehicle specifications, and detailed overviews.
It’s a veritable treasure trove of useful knowledge for those of us who like to kick tires and make offers, and it’s user-friendly to boot. Type in your search terms (ex: 1967 MGB) and the program displays its results in an accessible graph, with each plot representing a car sale. Click on a plot to see its specs or check the table below to view average, median, high and low price estimates. You can also scroll further back in time to see how prices have changed over the years. The app comes to iOS users soon for their mobile devices. Give it a spin and happy hunting!
